This keynote speech will serve as the introduction to the topic of the focus of the day, Getting Older Together. Katharina Oguntoye talks about what can be understood by the term “intergenerationality” and which challenges multigenerational cohabitation can bring. Proceeding from her own biographical observations as a performer, she turns an intersectional gaze that is critical of discrimination to questions of growing older as an artist, but also as well during everyday life and in the future design of shared living and working space. Following the input by the sociologist, one’s own desires and needs for the legendary topic of growing older can be discussed during the subsequent lunch with the audience and colleagues.
The event will be held in German spoken language.
An event by Performing Arts Festival Berlin.
